Summary

A Course in Miracles (ACIM) - the self-study spiritual-thought system that teaches the way to love and forgiveness - has captivated the minds and captured the hearts of millions of people. Delivering inner peace where fear and pain once prevailed, its universal message is unsurpassed in its power to heal. Yet many students report that they have difficulty grasping the principles or keeping up with the lessons. So even while they yearn for the spiritual freedom the course offers, they put the book aside, hoping to get to it one day.

Alan Cohen, ACIM student and teacher for more than 30 years, takes the big-picture ideas of the course and brings them down to earth in 22 concise, easy-to-understand chapters. Featuring entertaining examples, stories, and real-life applications, this unique, listener-friendly guide will prove invaluable to longtime ACIM students and newcomers alike.

A Course in Miracles Made Easy is the Rosetta Stone that will open doors for you to understand the course and use it to generate practical, healing results in your life.

Exceeded expectations

This Book was beautifully narrated by Alan Cohen who very much added to the narrative with his tone, inflection and honesty.

I observed my resistance to the belief that ACIM was scribed from the voice of the Christian god. Alan addresses this directly which I personally found helpful.

It is a wonderful summary which nestled itself comfortably alongside
my inner peace. The experience was quite beautiful really. I will listen to this book over again.

Joyous.

Great if you like hearing about Jesus and God

Too religious for me. Slow narration style. Patronising introduction. I tried really hard to finish it but gave up on chapter 17

Full of amazing information

I couldn't finish the book last year. The author's voice is really a drag. But as I have evolved I now find the book really amazing and useful. Very very useful. Many references to Jesus. Though I'm not Christian I'm not uncomfortable with that. If you are, this is not the book for you. Thank you so much to the author for your hard work in putting this book together. The effort is really obvious. I will read it several times over!

Just what i needed.

After listening to another audiobook about ‘living a course in miracles’ after which i felt so much worse about things, i was going to give up. But this audiobook and author really delivered a great message on how to live using the teachings of a course in miracles.
I am very grateful i found this audiobook.

Embrace Your Freedom

Life Changing, Enhancing & Saving.

The new or revisited perspectives provided in the book are at once illuminating and liberating.
Many you will/may know already but are worth rexamining especially if they have yet to foster change in our lives. But those perspectives that are new or presented in a new light are seriously liberating.

Each thought is presented by way of an interesting example, making the "lessons"/ thoughts etc very accessible.

My only slight gripe is I found the narration slightly slow, but I easily cured that by increasing the narration speed. I dont know if this was the reason behind bookmarks I created not saving in the exact place I was expecting. Hence for these 2 reasons, the performance dropped a star, but better to have a slightly slow rendition you can speed up than vice versa.

Overall this is a great book and an excellent & accessible route through the course.

A Must Listen

This book brings the course to ‘life’ for me. I study ACIM, it brings me peace, however Alan Cohen animates its principles in a way that you just know this is truly an attainable way of life. Thank you!

Best Book I’ve Ever Read

If you’re in a place in life where all you see are the things going wrong and this is the book for you. They pulled me out of my purse and paint my life for the better. I will read this book again and again over the course of my life I’m sure of it.

Fantastic application of ACIM

This is wonderful clarification and reinforcement of many of the principles, and a better understanding on ACIM. I have many of Marianne Williamson‘s books audio and tapes and this is a new refreshing approach. I love his many quotes from and definitions from many other philosophers, poets, and eastern teachers. What a great find.

Listening is powerful

I read this book and it was very meaningful for me. After a year or so I thought I’d like to listen to it and I must say there is something deeply powerful about the spoken word and that is the case with this book. Well worth reading and listening to.

Parables / storytelling to illustrate basics

I found this book engaging and it has inspired me to pick up the Bible again. I looked at it in the first place because it had great reviews. It seems the majority of complaints is about the author giving specific anecdotes from his life, from friends or students.'

This was exactly what I enjoy!

It is not a bullet points 'cliffs notes' of ACIM but you can get that out of the stories.

I will re-listen!

Maybe the first ACIM book you should read

I wish I had read this before or at the same time as I started studying The Course. He does a great job putting complex ideas into simple, understandable and (of most value) applicable lessons for life change. This is the best companion to ACIM I have read (and I've read them all-- almost ;-) Good job, Alan Cohen. I am on my second reading and will go back over and over.

Another ACIM based book which falls short for me...

Truthfully, it was hard for me to make it all the way through this book, though I persevered and finally finished it. It is not the first ACIM based book I have read. There were many concepts and “teachings” contained in this book which I believe to be quite beneficial, authentic and wise - most, if not all, of which I have already encountered via other sources and resources; however, I often (or typically) seem to find some elements in ACIM teachings which feel somehow arrogant to me and so far in my exposure to ACIM certainly do not address all areas of inquiry about this human life and the purpose of certain experiences from a spiritual perspective. And, though Alan Cohen I imagine to be a very kind, loving and well-intentioned person, some of his personal/professional stories recounted here seemed like an odd pat on the back for himself or someone else - or even subtle or not so subtle self marketing....even if that was unintended, that was my experience of it - possibly better editing could have assisted there. And perhaps for me, there is simply too much Christianity based terminology/dogma for my tastes in ACIM - meaning too much religion based terminology/concepts. I am definitely not anti-Christian as I certainly believe in and honor Jesus as a master spiritual teacher - that is one reason why the arrogance I seem to experience in ACIM is off-putting since Jesus - said to be the source of these teachings - (to my knowledge and perception) Jesus was a humble man/teacher & mentor who truly taught only love ultimately. And that is a message contained in this book which does resonate with me. In any case, I feel this book and ACIM do have positive concepts to impart - from which many will benefit - and hopefully that is what is most important. But also hopefully readers will explore multiple beneficial spiritual sources & resources to have a broader all around perspective. I have never been able so far to bring myself to dive into the actual ACIM material and I attribute that fact to the overwhelming amount of content as well as the ACIM based books I have read that do not fully resonate for me. Perhaps the actual material would deliver a different experience for me regarding the ACIM teachings - or perhaps not... There is other channeled spiritual information available which resonates more authentically for me. And, ultimately, I believe in finding the spiritual sources that more closely align for each individual will be most beneficial for them while always embracing both genuine openness and discernment - and as long as those teachings are heart-centered, are from love and teach love. 💜. Ahh, earth school is always here to teach us one way or another while we are in these human bodies!
